NASA's Aerospace Education Services Project and the Kentucky Southeast-Southcentral Education Cooperative are presenting two Educate to Innovate opportunities this summer. These conference workshops will explore engineering design challenges, problem-based learning activities, distance-learning modules, inquiry-based lessons, literacy across the curriculum and hands-on projects. Event agenda items will target the next generation standards of learning for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Workshop participants will experience eight breakout sessions with hands-on activities over the two-day training. Participants also can sign up for free 90-minute virtual follow-up with one of NASA's aerospace education specialists.

Two separate conference opportunities are available. The first will take place June 20-21, 2012, at Eastern Kentucky University. The second will take place June 26-27, 2012, at Corbin Center for Technology and Community Activities in Corbin, Ky.
